|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Evaluation of Dolastatin-10 in Patients With Hormone Refractory Prostate Cancer|
|Study Start Date:||October 1998|
|Study Completion Date:||May 2000|
|Primary Completion Date:||December 1999 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the objective response rate in patients with hormone refractory prostate cancer treated with dolastatin 10. II. Determine the toxicity of this regimen in this patient population.
OUTLINE: Patients receive dolastatin 10 IV bolus every 3 weeks. Treatment continues for a minimum of 2 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 15-30 patients will be accrued for this study.
